Pete was introduced to Rane while working with his mentor, Sully, on tour with country artist Joe Nichols.
Healey writes: "I never thought I’d have Rane in my racks, but now I can’t picture using anything else. I started out using their C4 Compressor / Limiter and liked it so much that I had to try out their G4 Quad Gate."
After the Nichols tour, Pete landed a gig as tour manager and FOH engineer for rising stars Mute Math, an eclectic band from New Orleans. (The band's groundbreaking backwards music video performance of Typical is one of the most-viewed videos on YouTube.)
Mute Math's live show provides an exciting challenge to any sound engineer, with homemade instruments, live sampling, a junked-out keytar, and the kind of random events that make their performances memorable. They tapped Pete to run their FOH system for a tour that covered 40 cities in the U.S. and Canada.
Healey's signature processing racks - used on tours with Kelly Clarkson, Mute Math, Luke Bryan, and the Lost Trailers - includes a TC D2 Delay, TC M1 Reverb, TC M2000 Multi-Effects Processor, as well as multiple Rane C4 Compressors and Rane G4 Quad Gates.
